Tips from locals
Wonderful family run chateau with excellent restaurants and things for kids to do.
The "Tintin Château", fully furnished (a bit too much for my liking) and lived in by the owners. There's a lot to see and do when in the grounds: see the hunting hounds being fed (a real show!), a Tintin exhibition, glide along the waterways in an electric boat .... On your way out why not try the…
Not as popular as the other chateaux which is why I like it. Has a TinTin museum and really, believe, it's cool! even for adults. Also has a moat with flat bottomed boats for short trips.

“The largest château in the Loire Valley, built by Francis the first, with over 400 chimneys and a double spiral staircase designed by Leonardo da Vinci. A good days' excursion, as one can also rent bicycles onsite”

“The chateau has the most stunning views over the Loire river, and its park hosts the annual International Festival of Gardens. From early May through mid- October, this unique festival brings more than thirty different landscape architects, designers and artists from around the world that are invited each year to display their creativity around a theme which changes every year. A great addition to the chateau’s beautiful surroundings, where Featured gardens are often strange or entertaining, sometimes futuristic or far-fetched. ”
